Dispatchers repeatedly told Lisa Makris, 45, that the telephone line was reserved for emergencies, but she kept calling between 4:54 a.m. and 6:50 a.m., the arrest report said.

She told the dispatcher that she thought she blacked out earlier from drinking too much alcohol and wasn’t sure where her car was parked.

The call was traced to Makris’ apartment on North Federal Highway, where an officer found the door wide-open. Makris was lying in bed, police say.

She told officers she used an inactivated phone to dial 911 because that was the only call that would go through. Her phone was locked inside her car, which she couldn’t find, she told the officer.

She also told the officer that repeatedly calling 911 was “not a big deal,” the report said.

The 911 calls tied up the dispatch center, interfering with other calls for service, the report said.

Makris was arrested and faces a 911 misuse charge. She was released from the Palm Beach County Jail late Monday on her own recognizance.
